Cartoon Network Cancels 'Thundercats' – Geek Mundo

Nerdist is reporting that Cartoon Network has indeed cancelled its reboot of the ‘Thundercats’.  More details after the jump!

The adventure-based series managed to get two seasons under its belt before the axe fell; The adventures of Lion-O and company was not on Cartoon Network’s list of returning shows in a recent press announcement. The show played closer in tone to Avatar: The Last Airbender than the campiness of the original, which was a point of contention for many diehard fans.

Well, I’m not really surprised either.  I was a die-hard fan of the original (Mumm-ra is still my dude) and quite frankly, I was out after the first episode.  I mean, it was cool but it was missing that fire that made the original so good.  Campy or not. I think the ‘Thundercats’ have a good shot at making it one day, it will take some good writers and some open minds.  We simply can’t expect to have a movie without some changes, unfortunately.

Are you sad to see the ‘Thundercats’ go?  Should someone else reboot it?
